Stock TRD struts good for 1.5" AAL ?

I have 1" blocks now , kind of want alittle rake back. And I hate how much the truck squats if anythings in the bed since it sits almost level empty .

My rear struts are brand new, Id like to keep them if possible. They ok for a 1.5" lift or is that pushing it ?

truck is a 2013 TRD sport 4x4 LB.

My current leaf has a total of 4 if you count the fat short bottom one.

Just to update, I took some measurements from the wheel well to the center of the hub with the AAL installed and rear end floating in the air , then with the struts bolted and the truck sitting on the ground .

The struts have about 2" of down travel left in them.

So they should be fine for normal driving until I upgrade.

Figured Id share in case any one every had the same question.
